Learning Outcomes in Library Media Skills.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
This guide for school library media specialists presents seven learning outcomes in library media skills that were identified in "The Library Media Program: A Maryland Curricular Framework" and matches them with appropriate library media skills/attitudes. It is noted that these matches produce indicators that are fully integrated to describe activities that lead to the successful achievement of the learning outcomes in all disciplines and promote lifelong learning. The guide begins by providing a rationale for library instruction, noting additional related resources for media specialists produced by the Maryland State Department of Education. The seven outcomes are then listed and briefly described: (1) students will demonstrate the ability to locate and use materials and equipment; (2) they will demonstrate the ability to review, evaluate, and select media for an identified information need; (3) they will demonstrate the ability to learn and apply study, research, reference, and critical thinking skills to organize information; (4) they will demonstrate the ability to comprehend content in various types of media; (5) they will demonstrate the ability to retrieve and manage information; (6) they will demonstrate an appreciation of books and other media as sources of information and recreation; and (7) they will demonstrate the ability to create print and nonprint media. Specific activities are then listed for each of these outcomes and representative subject matches for the library media learning outcomes in mathematics, reading, writing, science, and social studies at different grade levels are shown in a series of 19 charts. Indicators of the successful achievement of each outcome are included in the charts. (Contains 5 references.) (KRN)
